Historic Sites of Manitoba: Broadview School No. 957 (RM of Morris)

Broadview School District was formed in 1898 and officially consolidated with Morris in 1968. The original school on this site, in the northeast quarter of 16-4-1 east of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Morris, was enlarged and updated twice before the 1950 flood resulted in the construction of a new modern building. Low enrolment led to the school’s closure in 1965. A cairn was erected at the site in July 2008 and was dedicated to the pioneers, teachers, trustees, parents, and students of the Broadview School District.
